Using Data? Here’s What Might Surprise You

Please join the Alliance for a Project 24 webinar dedicated to the increasingly important topic of using data to drive improvement in teaching and learning.

Educators hear time and time again that they should be using data in everything they do in schooling: to personalize learning, to help teachers improve, to make instructional decisions, etc. But as many practitioners know, using data in education is not a straightforward process.

Members of the Project 24 panel of experts will give insights into the surprises that they have encountered in their own journeys to better utilize data. Stephen Lazar, will talk about how data revealed some surprising facts—and how things are not always what they seem—in his New York high school. Jennifer Barnett will share some surprising facts about the tools she uses to integrate data into digital learning at her project-based school in Alabama. And Gail Pletnick will impart lessons she learned when her district developed its own integrated data system that includes assessment, teaching resources, and professional development. Gov. Bob Wise will moderate the discussion and panelists will address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.

Please direct questions concerning the webinar to If you are unable to watch the webinar live, an archived version will be available at within one business day after the event airs.
